Xometry appoints George Hornig as chairman of board

March 22, 2021

On-demand manufacturing marketplace Xometry, headquartered in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA, has appointed George Hornig as the first chairman of the Board of Directors of Xometry. Hornig has served Xometry since the company’s founding in 2013, he is also currently chairman of The Seed Lab, an early-stage venture capital fund, as well as co-chairman of Healthwell Acquisition Corp.

“I am looking forward to serving as chairman of Xometry,” stated Hornig. “It is the capstone of my career to help Xometry grow from inception to the unique custom, on-demand manufacturing platform it is today. Given the $260 billion size of the addressable global market, Xometry has a tremendous opportunity to continue its growth, including the introduction of additional services like cash flow financing and supplies. Moreover, Xometry’s thousands of manufacturing partners are largely small manufacturing businesses, so it makes me proud to be part of a company that helps these companies thrive.”

Hornig has extensive experience in the global financial industry executive, having held leadership roles at PineBridge Investments, Credit Suisse Asset Management, Deutsche Bank, Wasserstein Perella & Company (where he was a co-founder), and The First Boston Corp. Before entering financial services, he practiced law after graduating from Harvard with an AB and JD/MBA.

“George has been an outstanding director and advisor to Xometry since our founding,” commented Randy Altschuler, Xometry’s CEO. “His guidance has helped Xometry become the largest marketplace for on-demand manufacturing. We’re thrilled for him to lead Xometry’s board as we continue to grow our business.”
